Superstar Salman Khan has been a charmer for ages. He is still a favourite of millions even after coming of new age actors. Over all these years, one thing which Khan has avoided is getting married. But recently, an old video has surfaced on internet where the actor is heard talking how he once thought and tried to settle down with his co-actress Juhi Chawla.
Salman Khan asked for Juhi Chawla hand in marriage
In the clip from his interview in 1990s, Salman reveals that he had once asked Chawla’s father for her hand in marriage and was rejected. When questioned why Juhi’s father turned down his offer, the actor said that he guessed that he didn’t fit the bill.
While sharing the video on Twitter, the user wrote in the caption, “This salman khan (red heart emojis)” indicating Salman’s soft-spoken nature at that time. In the clip, Salman is seen in a printed blue polo shirt paired with jeans and a hat. He quotes, “Juhi is very sweet. Adorable girl. I toh asked her father if he would let her get married to me.”
The interviewer then asks him, “What did he say?” Salman reveals that he said ‘No’. When prodded to tell why, Salman replied, “Don’t fit the bill I guess.”
